I am very happy with the services received from Simpson Millar solicitors especially dealing with Lisa Swales. She has been very supportive throughout my case. Also all general consultants involved have been supportive. My case can raise awareness and make hospitals take more interest in their patients when there are problems and deal with medical errors effectively instead of fobbing them off. Staff do not have to live with the consequences of their mistakes - patients do. In my case I have to endure this pain for the rest of my life.

Lisa and her team were fantastic at every stage of my claim. They explained everything clearly, listened and responded to any questions and concerns in a very helpful and friendly way. I couldn't have been happier with the help and service I received.

It’s been an absolute pleasure doing business with you and the memories of all the ups and downs and the result we finally got will stay with me for a very, very long time.
